Take this short personality test and respond to your results. (at the end, find the detailed profile of your personality account – click “click to view” under “You” and “self awareness and personal growth.” You can even google your type and find more info on it!)

I’m an ISFJ. These are the traits I am supposed to have:
• Large, rich inner store of information which they gather about people
• Highly observant and aware of people’s feelings and reactions
• Excellent memory for details which are important to them
• Very in-tune with their surroundings – excellent sense of space and function
• Can be depended on to follow things through to completion
• Will work long and hard to see that jobs get done
• Stable, practical, down-to-earth – they dislike working with theory and abstract thought
• Dislike doing things which don’t make sense to them
• Value security, tradition, and peaceful living
• Service-oriented: focused on what people need and want
• Kind and considerate
• Likely to put others’ needs above their own
• Learn best with hands-on training
• Enjoy creating structure and order
• Take their responsibilities seriously
• Extremely uncomfortable with conflict and confrontation

And this is pretty spot on for me. And these are the careers for me:
• Interior Decorators
• Designers
• Nurses
• Administrators and Managers
• Administrative Assistants
• Child Care / Early Childhood Development
• Social Work / Counselors
• Paralegals
• Clergy / Religious Workers
• Office Managers
• Shopkeepers
• Bookkeepers
• Home Economics

And I’m going back to school for counseling. I think these tests do hold merit, and I know in my old job we did use them to help people know their strengths and weaknesses.
